I have a usecase for playing video which is located somewhere on the internet and being delivered through a fast and secure CDN (Content delivery network).
My question :
Is there any way that media framework of unreal engine let me play videos from web?
Depends on the platform you’re playing on. I think that, ideally, you’d want to have a media server that streams RTSP or Windows Media. I’m not sure if it’s possible to stream directly off HTTP - VlcMedia might be able to do it.
The link says it will work mostly on windows but I would like to have it on ios and android. Any idea how can we achieve that?
There is currently no streaming support on macOS/iOS, sorry. We’ll try to implement it for 4.17, but I can’t promise.
On Android we support the following streaming protocols: HTTP, HTTPD, HTTPS, MMS, RTSP, RTSPT, RTSPU. That being said, I don’t believe we actually tested any of them, but they should work.
